Help: bleeding brake issue

Well today i was bleeding my front brakes. I did the left side first and had no problem doing it. When I came to the right side thats when i had the issue. The problem is when i start to pull my brake lever to get the air out, the brake fluid was not coming out from the nipple. The fluid was coming out from where the nipple is attached to. Its hard to explain but i put a picture up with an arrow pointing where the fluid comes out when i try to bleed it. If anyone could help me with this issue I would really appreciate.

So it was coming out of the threads? If that's the case just tighten it up a little bit.

yeah it was coming out from the threads. I cant bleed it because everytime i try to bleed it thats where the brake fluid would come out and not the nipple. I'm starting to think that the caliper may be bad.

check to see if there is some kind of blockage in the bleeder screw...you should be safe to just inscrew it to check it. that is the only reason is should come out around the treads and not out the bleeder itself. If the bleeder is blocked the pressure in the line would find the next easiest way out which would be the treads. good luck! let us know what you find out.

Make sure your reservoir cap is ON when you pull the bleeder out.

Do I completely drain out all the brake fluid before I pull out the bleeder screw?

no you shouldn't have to. by putting the cap back on the master cylinder, it should keep the fluid from just running out.

Murph says it best bro....you'll be fine. I've seen many bleeder screws blocked or messed up (machined poorly), and I've seen a couple with no hole in them at all (very poor machine job).

You can turn things upside down, take all the pieces off, and pull all the handles as much as you want. Let it all run out if you'd like. Bottom line is....top it up and bleed it when you are all done reassembling it and you'll be good as new.

But make sure you clean up any fluid spills ASAP. It will remove paint if left on too long.
